About Kendra

I love the idea of coming alongside a student (traditional or not) in pursuit of a goal. It might be because I have had so many mentors and teachers come alongside me! Learning is a process and sometimes all you need is a little encouragement--a little guidance, help, organization and inspiration--to get you from mediocre to outstanding.

Tutoring began for me in high school helping a younger student with her French homework. I started doing it for money in college at our University's Writing Center. The reward was in watching a student come in "stuck" and leave with tracks to run on.

My specific strengths in tutoring are English writing and reading, Bible studies and French language/grammar. I minored in writing at the University of Central Arkansas and writing has been a part of my job in Christian ministry for the last five years. I have gained more knowledge of the Bible through full time ministry and a handful of seminary classes. My bachelor's degree in French has also given me a basic ability to tutor Romance languages in general at a beginner level.

My job as a tutor is to equip you with the tools you need to accomplish your own goals! Learning is hard work, but the reward is great. Let's go after it!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Bible Studies

I have worked in full time ministry with an interdenominational international Christian ministry (Cru). I took and excelled in "Bible Study Methods," "Biblical Communication & Interpretation," "God, Bible, Holy Spirit," and "New Testament Survey", seminary classes offered through the Institute of Biblical Studies. I love learning about the Bible with others and have led Bible studies and individually mentored college students using the Bible for five years as part of my full time job.

ESL/ESOL

Apart from being a native English Speaker, I believe my minor in Writing from the University of Central Arkansas and my BA in French have helped give me an understanding of English grammar and syntax as well as the process of learning a foreign language. I am passionate about language and understand the challenges of gaining proficiency in a second or third language. I am not ESL certified but I would love to learn more and I think I could help provide help and encouragement to anyone seeking to learn English as a second language.

French

I have a BA in French from the University of Central Arkansas and had the privilege of studying abroad in France for five months. I have helped other students of French in high school and college. The language learning process is one that intrigues and delights me.

Piano

I took piano lessons from an excellent teacher for about nine years. I can read music and teach basic theory. I am not equipped to teach past a basic level, but I could give someone a solid foundation for future musical pursuits.

Reading

Reading and reading comprehension have been areas where I excelled academically. I tutored in my university's Writing Center for two years. The ability to read and comprehend is a great gift that I would love to nurture in students.

Writing

I minored in writing at the University of Central Arkansas and received a 4.0/4.0 for all writing classes. I got to tutor in the University's Writing Center for about two years, helping college students brainstorm, organize, and edit papers across all university disciplines.
